guy I used to buy my tropical fish from used to sell them, he got nailed by a large lionfish in his finger, sliced it open with a razor blade to get the toxin out and phoned the UK poisons unit, they told him that was about all that could be done, that was the last time he put his hands anywhere near the water of a lionfish tank.

The world's most venomous fish is a close relative to the scorpionfishes, known as the stonefish. Through its dorsal fin spines, the stonefish can inject a venom that is capable of killing an adult person in less than an hour.

They re not that dangerous very few people need medical attention after a sting.....its similar to a bee sting we had one in a big tank i had in the gym years ago a lad was cleaning it out one day and got tagged on the wrist we took the spine out and kept it clean etc.....he never had any problems.
